  1. Blimey, these things are like hens' teeth. Well done for getting hold of it, and thanks for the write-up. One of the finest live bass sounds I have heard was Lincoln Goines playing his signature Fodera through a Walter Woods head into an Epifani 3x10 cab... a sound so lovely it made my heart ache.
  2. [quote name='dood' post='37386' date='Jul 26 2007, 03:53 PM']You could also have 2 mics on one source that are a small distance apart to pick up differences in tones from that source.. for example, a mic facing an acoustic guitar bridge and one pointing the sound hole. 2 completely different source tones.[/quote] Quite a few acoustic bassists record like this - either 2 mics set up in different positions, or 1 mic and a piezo pickup on the bridge.
  3. No, but what I can tell you is that when I saw the title of this thread, I initially read it as "double [b]mincing[/b]". I thought maybe it was something to do with Julian Clary and Graham Norton...
  4. Fingers for the vast majority, a wee bit of slap and one song with a pick

  6. [quote name='OldGit' post='37231' date='Jul 26 2007, 10:59 AM']Oh its NOT Parcelforce! they get very upset of I get that bit wrong. It's the [b]Post Office[/b] - totally different outfit.[/quote] Yet remarkably, the packing guidelines they keep referring to are actually the Parcelfarce ones, right? Or have they changed tack to a slightly different slopy-shouldered teeth-sucking ooh-not-my-problem-mate approach? What a shower of complete fornicating masturbators.
  7. Afternoon old chap, Come in & pull up a chair, the kettle's on.
  8. Rickies... [i]ick[/i]. Add me to the why-the-fuss list. Also, P-bass necks... faaaar too chunky for my silly ickle fingers. In fact, P-basses in general. I just don't get 'em.

    [quote name='Toasted' post='33601' date='Jul 18 2007, 01:50 PM']Couldn't agree more. If you're going to buy boutique you need to use it [/quote]Damn right. I use my Shuke at every gig and rehearsal, and loving every second... nothing else is getting a look-in at the moment. I can't understand people who pay a fortune for some OTT bells-&-whistles hippy sandwich showboat and then come over all Tap with it... "Don't touch it! Don't even look at it!". Bleh. The things are made to be [i]played[/i], for god's sake.
  10. Superglue, wonderful stuff... has nursed my fingers through many a busy weekend
  11. I like the body shape v.much, but the headstock is a definite afterthought. Looks like he spent all week designing the body, and then scribbled the headstock on as he was going out the door to the pub on the Friday afternoon.

[/quote] [quote name='Russ' post='31932' date='Jul 14 2007, 10:44 PM']Anthony Jackson.[/quote]...and Mike Stern, officially The Best & Most Fabulous Guitarist In The World IMHO. Where was this? And how in the hell did I miss it?
  13. Perhaps they've that some of them are [url="http://basschat.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=2475"]displaying a common fault[/url]...?
  14. So if you're wiping the hard drive, presumably it won't come complete with your collection of scanned Edwardian llama porn? Shame.

  16. Yes, my Yam RBX765 is a work-in-progress too..!
  17. [quote name='Toasted' post='29580' date='Jul 10 2007, 09:03 AM']We need to talk more about DIs.[/quote] Good point. There's this one [url="http://basschat.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=334"]http://basschat.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=334[/url] but perhaps a comparison of various boxes too? A what-do-you-use-and-why sort of thing?

    I know what you're talking about, and I'm afraid there is no cure. Nothing. Sorry. The night before you go pick it up is the worst. You won't sleep a wink. I didn't.
  19. You can get a huge range of marquetry veneers on the Bay, usually very cheap too. So you could get a matching or a contrasting wood. Most veneers prove to be a nice reasonably snug fit too (but not so snug that you have to hammer 'em in). You'll need to file down the nut slots a bit too. Are you going to put a sealing finish on the board to harden it up a bit? I've heard that repeated applications of danish oil are pretty good (think it was bt68 who passed that one on..?).
  20. Nope, don't like them at all. Especially the fretless. Ugh. Nasty. [/Liar]

    BOSS ME-50B

    I tried one once and hated it TBH. Mind you, I only had about half an hour in its company. At the time, it struck me as being ten fuzzes, a crap synth and a couple of useful toys in a box. I dare say if I had time to get used to one, I'd find it a lot better than that though.
  22. I've got one of the original silver HRs and it is indeed a lot of fun... it only ever gets used for mucking about at home, which is a shame and an insult to its capabilities really. I've thought more than once about getting shot of it but I'm sure I'd kick myself.
  23. Very tempted to ask him which part of London 'Merseyside' is in
